“We have rented the ERUCC facility in downtown Frederick two times this past year (2018) and we are very pleased with the service that has been provided. The location is very convenient, with plenty of parking nearby, easy to locate and in the heart of Frederick downtown. The facility is excellent and nicely maintained. Ample space for parties and it also has tables/chairs and pre-installed DJ system with two projectors, which is a BIG PLUS.”  ---Dr. Nirmal Shah

“The Antietam Room at the Homewood Suites is an ideal location for meetings. It’s the perfect size for a small to midsize group and includes a projector and screen for presentation reviews. My team and I have had several meetings there and will continue to use it due to their Outstanding Service, Reasonable pricing and Delicious catering (the brownies are too die for).”--Jill Somers, TAMKO Frederick

“We enjoyed working with the team at Tenth Ward to prepare for and hold our event. We found them to be responsive and interested in providing a unique, attractive space for the community. As a nonprofit, we valued their willingness to work with our budget by hosting us on a weeknight. The night of the event our attendees appreciated the novelty of meeting in a distillery-- as well as the opportunity to partake in custom craft cocktails-- and we found it to be a great way to showcase one of the places that makes Downtown Frederick special.” --Emily Huebner, Heart of the Civil War Heritage Area
